Shot blasting

Shot blasting is a process whereby small metal beads are fired at high speeds onto the concrete surface below and then sucked back up into the same machine. The impact of these beads causes the surface of the floor to break up and come away (to a depth between 0.5 and 2mm), exposing a fresh, unsealed surface. Shot Blasting is typically used to:

  • Make a surface course for line marking, allowing for a greater chemical bond between line marking paint and the ground, increasing its lifespan.
  • Completely remove existing lines from the ground

Shot blasting isn't always essential for line marking but is the preferred preparation method by most paint manufacturers.


Chemical removal

Depending on the type of paint previously used, it is possible to soften the paint using chemical thinners which allows the softened paint to be scraped away. This is a relatively labour-intensive process and sometime difficult to remove all residue.


Grinding

Concrete floor grinders come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Paint and the top layer of the surface are simply ground away by mechanical action. Finishes can vary in coarseness dependent on the type of grinder used. Grinding typically uses a circular action making it difficult to provide straight edged finishes.

Bitumen paint removal - Bush head hammer

A grinder with a ‘bush hammer’ head is commonly used for removing paint on bitumen. The bush head hammer uses a spinning disc with small spikes to scrape away the surface level of bitumen.

Investing in line marking or floor coating can be a considerable undertaking, so believe the right preparation is the first step in achieving the desired outcome.

Without proper concrete cleaning, chemical sealing and line marking will be largely ineffective as the dust will not allow the chemicals to properly adhere to the floor. We offer professional concrete cleaning services with Australian standard sweeping and scrubbing machines to ensure that your site is both presentable and ready for line marking and chemical sealing.

Concrete sealing is a process of covering freshly dried concrete with sealing chemicals that protect it from surface damage and discoloration. The sealing process is also used in adhering the concrete dust to the ground which can otherwise become a respiratory hazard in non-ventilated areas.

We use Viroseal water born concrete penetrating sealant in our sealing projects. It’s an environmentally friendly concrete sealing solvent systems that out-performs alternatives in areas of chemical resistance, wear, heat and UV resistance.

We also offer epoxy floor coating which has the benefit of heavy-duty floor protection of concrete surfaces. Epoxy floor coating is a highly durable alternative to standard line marking paint which has many of its own benefits, including but not limited to:

  • Offers a hard-wearing durable surface able to withstand heavy and continuous traffic
  • Epoxy is resistant to almost all bacteria while lasting significantly longer than paint.
  • Resists oil stains and water
  • Easy to clean
  • Ideal for warehouses and industrial applications
  • Provides a chemically resistant surface ideal for manufacturing plants
  • Prevents wear and tear on existing concrete floors
